    "Had a lovely week at the Bothy although the weather was a mix of sunshine, showers and occasional heavy rain. Plenty of places to visit including Carlisle, the northern Lakes and Penrith. Hutton in the Forest is well worth a visit as the house tour is very interesting. The single track lanes round about are not for the faint hearted especially if there is a tractor coming the other way but the peace and quiet of the cottage makes up for the lack of walkable attractions. There was everything in the cottage you could possibly need including a library of books and games. Many thanks to Alison and Richard for their kind welcome."

    "Lovely week at the Bothy. Amazing hosts, amazing place and all enjoyed a fabulous week in Cumbria. The accommodation has all you need and more. Kids absolutely loved the zip wire - we will definitely be back. Thanks for such an amazing week."

    "Cottage on a farm with another cottage next-door and owner in farm-house on site. The cottage is in the middle of nowhere and it snowed when we went in February. Fantastic views of night-sky from garden. It was modern inside, spotlessly clean, comfortable sofas, well equipped with games for kids. Some thoughtful extras - wine, sweets. Easy to use, cosy feeling optimist fire. Our main problem was that the biomass heating came on in the night in the bedroom. It was vibrating and making a loud low hum and could not be turned off, so we couldn't sleep on the first night. It was a mistake that was sorted out quickly the next day when we spoke to the owner's son. We had chosen the property from the description/photos which said there was a large wooden play area just outside the cottage. The children were looking forward to this, but unfortunately it had recently been removed to make room for the garden for the larger property next door. It should have been changed on the description but it had not been."

    "We have spent a fantastic wk in the Bothy.Cant fault it.Peaceful,comfy and homely.I was worried about noise from the adjoining cottage before we went as this has been issues at other cottages we have stayed in but we didn't hear a thing!The cottage is well equipped and the owners are friendly and helpful.We have used it as a base to explore much of the cumbrian lakes and will definitely stay there again."

    "We are a family of two adults, a teenager and a toddler. The Bothy was a perfect getaway for us all. It's a ten-minute drive from the M6 and about 20 minutes to Penrith. We visited Windermere which took a little over an hour, though there was snow so we were driving with caution. The accommodation is lovely and the photos on the website really don't do it justice. The zip-wire in the garden kept us all entertained and we enjoyed walking around to see the pond with the swans. The crazy golf course was covered in snow when we were there but it looked like it would have been fun for the family. The kitchen is one of the most well-stocked rental property kitchens we'd ever seen - there were more appliances than we have in our own home! The house was warm, despite the weather and there were plenty of books and board games to keep us occupied in the evenings. There are two bathrooms, though no bath. The owners are lovely and strike the perfect balance between being welcoming hosts and leaving you to have your own space. We cannot recommend The Bothy highly enough and very much hope to go back again."
